Kaizen literally means improvement – improvement in your personal life, spiritual life and your working life. When a company adopts the kaizen model, it strives to improve its process in small but meaningful ways.
Kaizen was first introduced in the Toyota manufacturing plant in Japan in the early 1950s, and it has since become one of the country’s min reasons for its success.
In Japan, kaizen is a way of life in the workplace, from the office of the CEO all the way down to the shop apprentice. They take it very seriously and for good reason. Kaizen has led them from a defeated wartime nation to one of the strongest industrialized countries in the world.
But the best thing about kaizen – and the biggest reason that every company should adopt it – its that it does not rely on expensive innovation solutions. Just the opposite is true. The core principal of kaizen is to make small, immediate improvements in the processes and standards of the workplace.
